1 Annex II Revised Millennium Development Goal monitoring framework, including new targets and indicators, as recommended by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Millennium Development Goal Indicators At the 2005 World Summit (see General Assembly resolution 60/1), world leaders committed themselves to achieving four targets additional to the ones included in the United Nations Millennium Declaration (resolution 55/2). The General Assembly, in its decision 61/504, took note of the report of the Secretary- General on the work of the Organization, in which he recommended the inclusion of four new targets (A/61/1, para. 24).

The Group is mandated to prepare statistics and analyses on trends related to the and to review methodologies and technical issues in relation to the indicators. The new formulation of the monitoring framework, including the new targets and corresponding indicators as recommended by the Inter-Agency and Expert Group, is presented below. Where relevant, indicators will be calculated by sex and by urban and rural areas.
